War Oratorio

From the Emmy and BAFTA award winning team behind Holocaust – A Musical Memorial, this is a groundbreaking music film which traces a day in the life of three people caught up in a vicious spiral of war. A specially-commissioned classical oratorio forms the backbone of the film and is interwoven with the real stories of three ordinary people in the war zones of Afghanistan, Uganda and Kashmir.
